2. Women, women, women.
There's the Corps head honcho, ships captain, scientist who discover FTL, then grand daughter, more scientists, PDS commander, the sniper. They're all leveled head and the men are all emotional wrecks.
And where there is a man in charge, some woman is right there too.
3. Not much of a story either. Just drags on and on and OH! Must rush everything at the last minute.
4. Humans, Americans, invented the hyper drive, but now aliens gave it to us? What happen to the Web that they uploaded the plans too? China on Mars? What happened to New America that Rex was part of?
5. And how is the US gone? Didn't Casper go to NASA & T-Rex was an Army Ranger?
6. Where is the UN? When the Crux sent Casper back in time, he forced the UN Commander to get him air transport back to the US. Remember the UN Space Navy Vs Mars War? Casper on one side and Rex on the other?
Solomon is the only real interesting thing in this story. But the woman CEO outsmarts him who is not a scientist or IT specialist?
In Imperator, we get a good view of history, which this book has nothing in common with. It's like Nick Cole let this writer redo GE history and now, everything in Imperator is being cast aside.
Smells like what Disney did to Star Wars. Cannon tossed aside and a new vision being given.
I won't be buying anymore of this series and I'll be leery of the rest of GE from now on.
This book is definitely not written in the spirit of any of the other books. I couldn’t identify with any of the characters, none of the characters had any flair, any sense of humor, nor did the author give me any reason to root for anyone with the exception of the AI.
As another reviewer noted, what’s happening on earth just before and at the advent of faster than light technology is totally inconsistent with the history given in the galaxy edge novel Imperator.
The only reason I finished this book is because I’m a big fan of the galaxy edge series. Had this been the first book I read in the series I would not have considered reading any others. I sincerely hope this is this authors last contribution to this series.
The Nomad mission is revealed as maybe a way out, but for who? The action builds to a highly satisfying climax, and the conclusion is both pleasing and appropriate. Karen Travis knows how to write a full length story, with a opening, a meaty middle, and a well thought out end.
Set sometime after a series of catastrophes ruins large portions of the world, humanity in the Continental USA is struggling to hold on. Not important enough to be a part of the uplift and not wanting help from the closed off countries of Asia, the survivors cluster into distrustful communities for safety and shared resources. When a stranger is found wandering through potentially disease infested forest, she quickly becomes the key to several communities joining forces and reaching out for a new home beyond the earth.
Fans of the Galaxy's Edge series can enjoy this story of survival and intrigue set in a ruined earth, but should be informed that the pacing of the initial part of the book is far slower than a typical Galaxy's Edge book.
Karen Travis really has woven a fantastic tale set thousands of years before the events of Legionnaire. Her look into the first steps of AI is a harsh mirror for the protagonists who have to wonder if it is more human than they are. I am excited for the next entry in the series.
